What’s up with Microsoft and Yahoo!

Today again we face a major internet player trying to takeover Yahoo. This has been going on for quite some time now. Google and now Microsoft. CEO  Steve Ballmer, left, told employees in a company assembly Thursday (5-10-08)  that he knows how much he’d spend to buy Yahoo and accelerate his company’s Internet play. Meanwhile, Yahoo CEO Jerry Wang seemingly wants to take a less aggressive approach by keeping an open mind for other offers of merging with Google now for a more vast search engine platform.

This I know the big guys just keep getting bigger and for our purposes we should be aware of what is going on and how this will effect us and our internet searches. A question to ask yourself being that Microsoft has the monopoly on PC software, updates and what all do we want them to totally control the search engines too? They are going after Google it seems not just in healthy competition but hostile and aggressive. But yet they are willing to walk away if the price isn’t right. Now standing at a whopping $42.4 billion dollars. Can you say, “Yahoo-oooo!”

Assertive or Aggressive you be the judge
